Revell Review- The Magnolia Dutchess by Beth White

Hey again! I'm back, and this time with a book I am surprised and delighted to have read!



Fiona Lanier is the only woman in the tiny Gulf Coast settlement of Navy Cove. While her shipbuilding family races to fill the demand for American ships brought by the War of 1812, Fiona tries to rescue her brother who was forced into service by the British Navy.

Lieutenant Charlie Kincaid has been undercover for six months, obtaining information vital to the planned British invasion of New Orleans. When a summer storm south of Mobile Bay wrecks his ship and scatters the crew, Charlie suffers a head injury, ultimately collapsing in the arms of a beautiful mermaid who seems eerily familiar. As Charlie's memory returns in agonizing jags and crashes, he and Fiona discover that falling in love may be as inevitable as the tide. But when political loyalties begin to collide, they'll each have to decide where their true heart lies.

               *My Thoughts*

I have to admit to surprise...I didn't expect to like, or even finish this book. Why? Simple. I am an impatient person. When I picked up the first in this series, The Creole Princess, I thought for sure I would fall in love immediately. Unfortunately, (back to that impatience!), I couldn't get to the third chapter without skimming. It wasn't because of a lack of talent on Beth's part...the book was charming and packed with information. It was just too slow.

This one was not at all the sam!! Yes, it was still on the slower paced side, but it captured my attention right away! It was inspiring and taught me things about an era often lost in the world of fiction. I laughed, cried, sighed, gasped, and then laughed and cried again! Beautifully written, I cannot wait for book three!


                     *My Rating*

  I give the Magnolia Dutchess...


                              5 stars!! 

*I received this book from the publisher and the author in exchange for an honest review, which I have given. All thoughts were my own and I was not compensated in any other way.

Happy Reading,
